The Hubble Telescope changed what many though about space and the universe. Scientists predicted the earths age from anywhere between 10-20 years but the Hubble was able to predict 13-14 years. It also discovered "dark energy" which is the expansion rate of the earth. Hubble helped to show how galaxies form by capturing galaxies at different stages. -Identified exact age of the earth; 13.7 billion years -Discovery 2 of plutos moons; Nix, Hydra -Discovery of the earths expansion rate-The only telescope to capture an image of nearly 3,000 galaxies. In 1946, the American Lyman Spitzer purposes a plan for a space telescope. This idea lasted for about 30 years until NASA and a European space agency suggested a 3 meter space telescope in the 1970s. Money and funding was brought in 1977. The Hubble telescope was named off of Edwin Powell Hubble because of his discovery of the earths expansion in the 1920s. Light travels through space and hits the primary mirror making the light bounce off into the secondary mirror. The secondary mirror has a hole hat the light focuses into and leads to the telescopes instruments. http://pics-about-spac e-schematics?p=3
